More Occytober, Boots + Food Pron


About time for a blog update! Sorry my entries are so long, but I can't blog too often. I make sure to update my facebook photo albums regularly and then compile my favorite things here on the blog when I get a moment.

In chronological order I will start here 10-8-2010, Octavian's little friend from the neighborhood, Maddy came over to play. I have a few really cute pictures of them both playing together, but this one of Maddy is just completely adorable.

 This is one of my favorite pictures of Octavian, showing off his Occytober spirit! Again, completely adorable. Taken 10-14-10. You can view Octavian's second round of 365 days here on Facebook.

 Now don't be jealous, but I got treated to 3 pair of new boots @ Bass + a totally cute pair of Jordans. Thanks Gregpa! Below are my favorite boots. Cowgirl boots inspired by my obsession with True Blood. Thanks Gregpa!!!!

The kids aren't the only ones playing in our front yard. We've got critters too!

Now it's time for the usual Food Pron! These cream cheese bars are delicious, but very very rich and sweet. Just one is more than enough.

I made mashed potatoes from scratch for the first time. TOTALLY worth the effort.

Sugar cookies, absolutely PERFECT! Just make sure to bake them for only 5 minutes, and don't make them too thin.

 Breakfast is a sacred meal at our house. The best yummiest foods ever!

We tried something a little different to use up extra bananas.

As far as my knitting + crafts, I've packaged some orders + knit a few rounds on Jerome's socks. I haven't had much time for it all, but I ordered a new spinning wheel motor + plan to fit more of it into my new lifestyle. I'm definitely inspired again to create arty things.
Keep it Knitty!
